Rays' Willy Adames: Swipes bag
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adames went 0-for-2 with a walk while recording a stolen base Tuesday in a win over the Blue Jays in Game 1 of the AL Wild Card Round.

Adames struggled throughout September but managed to record a stolen base while Robbie Ray was on the mound. He only stole two bases during the year but got a good jump on Danny Jansen during the fourth inning. The 25-year-old recorded a slash line of .259/.332/.481 during the 2020 regular season.

Rays' Willy Adames: Not starting season finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adames is not in the lineup Sunday against the Phillies, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports.

Adames started the past six games but will head to the bench in the season finale with the Rays already having secured the best record in the AL. Joey Wendle moves to shortstop while Mike Brosseau starts at third base.

Rays' Willy Adames: Homers, steals base in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adames went 1-for-4 with a solo home run, a stolen base and an additional run Tuesday in the Rays' 5-2 loss to the Mets.

Adames' second-inning long ball accounted for the Rays' only earned run off Mets starter Seth Lugo, who struck out seven over 6.1 innings. The shortstop later came around to cross home on a wild pitch in the sixth inning after putting himself in scoring position on a successful double steal with Joey Wendle. Adames' batting average has nosedived in September thanks to a huge uptick in strikeouts (45.6 K%), but he's still managed to be a decent power source with four home runs on the month.

Rays' Willy Adames: Slumping in September
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adames, who went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in a loss to the Orioles on Sunday, is nevertheless slashing just .104/.173/.229 over the 52 plate appearances encompassing his last 13 games.

Adames' season line was up to an impressive .322/.398/.585 following a fourth straight multi-hit effort on Sept. 2 in a win over the Yankees, but the shortstop has been in a deep funk since. At the heart of the 25-year-old's extended struggles is a massive 51.9 percent strikeout rate over that span, which has helped limit Adames to just five total hits during the sample. There was a glimmer of hope to be found in Sunday's round tripper, however, as it marked the second time Adames left the yard in the last three games.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adames went 2-for-4 with a three-run home run in a win over the Orioles in the second game of Thursday's doubleheader.

Rays' Willy Adames: Not starting Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adames is out of the lineup Friday against the Red Sox, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.

Adames is 1-for-17 with 13 strikeouts over his past five games and will head to the bench Friday. Joey Wendle will take over at shortstop while Brandon Lowe starts at second base.

Rays' Willy Adames: On base thrice in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adames went 1-for-2 with two walks in a loss to the Nationals on Tuesday.

The 25-year-old shortstop pushed his season on-base percentage to an impressive .376 with Tuesday's busy night. In the process, Adames snapped a brief 0-for-12 skid that had encompassed his last three games. Largely on the strength of a 5-for-7 tally over his first two games of the month, he's still hitting a solid .286 through his first six September contests.

Rays' Willy Adames: Gets day off Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adames struck out in each of his four at-bats Friday, and he'll take a seat for Saturday's contest. Joey Wendle will start at shortstop in his place.

Rays' Willy Adames: Swats fifth homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adames went 3-for-3 with a double, a solo home run and a second run scored in Tuesday's 5-3 loss to the Yankees.

The shortstop picked up right where he'd left off at the end of August. Adames has three straight multi-hit efforts, and over his last 10 games he's batting .378 (14-for-37) with a 1.167 OPS. The hot streak has pushed his slash line on the season up to .316/.391/.579 with five homers, 15 RBI and 22 runs through 35 games.

Rays' Willy Adames: Finishes August on tear
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adames, who went 3-for-5 with a double in a win over the Yankees on Monday, finished August with a .333/.403/.633 slash line over his final 67 plate appearances.

The hot-hitting shortstop will now look to keep up the stellar work at the plate over the last few weeks of the season. Adames has been putting plenty of good wood on the ball during the aforementioned stretch, belting seven doubles and three home runs while generating an elite 38.5 percent line-drive rate and 46.2 percent hard-contact rate. However, he's also struck out at an elevated 31.3 percent clip and benefited from an unsustainable .472 BABIP over the same period, so some September regression is possible if he doesn't begin making more consistent contact.

Rays' Willy Adames: Blasts grand slam in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adames went 2-for-5 with a grand slam and one strikeout in Sunday's win against the Marlins.

The Rays didn't have much trouble driving up the score Sunday, but Adames provided some valuable insurance with his grand slam in the fifth inning. The 24-year-old had been in a bit of a slump recently as he mustered only one hit and one walk with four strikeouts over the past three games. He's struggled with a 32.2 percent strikeout rate this year but is hitting .283 with four home runs and 14 RBI.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adames is not in the lineup for Friday's game against Toronto.

Rays' Willy Adames: Key hit in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adames went 2-for-4 with an RBI single in a win over the Yankees on Wednesday.

Adames' eighth-inning single gave the Rays some key breathing room by extending their lead to 4-2. The young shortstop now has a nine-game on-base streak, a stretch during which he's raised his batting average, on-base percentage and slugging percentage by 60, 49 and 158 points to .293, .376 and .507, respectively.

Rays' Willy Adames: Crushes go-ahead homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rays' Willy Adames: Slugs pair of doubles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adames went 2-for-4 with two doubles and a run in a loss to the Blue Jays on Friday.

The hot-hitting shortstop was at it again during a sluggish night overall for the Rays offense. Adames now owns a five-game hitting streak, a stretch during which he's gone 8-for-17 with three doubles, one triple, one home run, thee RBI, two walks and six runs.

Rays' Willy Adames: On base four times
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adames went 3-for-5 with a walk, a double, two RBI and two runs scored Thursday against the Red Sox.

Adames extended his hitting streak to four games and contributed to the Rays' offensive barrage in Boston. One day after clubbing his first home run of the season, Adames recorded his third multi-hit effort of the campaign. Across 64 plate appearances this season, Adames is hitting .286/.375/.482 with 12 runs scored and five RBI.

Rays' Willy Adames: Finally leaves yard in '20
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adames went 1-for-4 with a solo home run, his first round tripper of the season, in a win over the Red Sox on Wednesday.

The 24-year-old's solo shot broke a season-opening 16-game power drought and served as his sixth extra-base hit of the campaign overall. The blast also extended Adames' modest hitting streak to three games, and fantasy managers can have some cautious optimism that the shortstop may be ready to break out on the power front. Through 58 plate appearances, Adames boasts a career-high 56.3 percent hard-contact rate that should lead to a few more balls leaving the yard if it persists.
